To that end, we’re pleased to announce we’ve just released an update to the calculator! In addition to bug fixes, we've made some changes as a result of your feedback.

Keep in mind this is still a very early preview of the Mists of Pandaria talent system, which will likely continue to evolve during development of the expansion. We also don’t plan on making further updates to the calculator until we get much closer to our testing phase, but rest assured we’ll still be considering your feedback throughout the development process.

Thanks to Radux for helping us with changes. Feel free to report anything we missed in the comments!

    Well, if you did read the blue post, you can get the feeling that it won't be ready for testing in a long while. Getting the feeling that it will take 5 months before any testing starts.

    Can't actually see any changes for DKs. I think I found... one or two tooltip corrections (Killing Machine and Sudden Doom lost the 'higher than rank 2' typos, woop-dee-doo; Reaping and Blood Rites still name abilities Unholy/Blood don't *have* for crying out loud)? Can't see any real number or ability changes.

    EDIT: Okay... so Asphyxiate costs a Blood Rune (which was already assumed by most, I'm sure, given that Strangulate does and it's basically just adding a stun to that) and they nerfed Anti-Magic Zone (which already had terrible scaling, so thanks Blizz for killing the last of my hopes for that spell, guess I'm going with Bone Shield after all).

    Molten armor drops the crit buff + fire damage on strike and mage armor looses mana regeneration ticks?What is the purpose behind this decision?
  1. kenshiro's Avatar
    Just a quick comment about sub-rogue, the backstab is currently costing 60 energy, not sure if that is intended (or a nerf) or they forgot to update the sub-unique talents or the spell itself.

    Bloodbath looks way better than the MoP version of Death Wish. War Banners sound really cool and fitting. No major warlock changes yet. If locks go live the way they are on paper then I'll probably main my warlock and have my warrior as an alt.

    I could be wrong but it seems Demonology got a new spell "Metamorphosis: Demonic Slash" *While in Metamorphosis your Shadowbolt turns into Demonic Slash. Demonic Slash: Tears at the enemy, instantly dealing 1280 shadow damage.*Learned at level 42. I don't remember it being in the learned spells before, so just in case.

    Balance druids now have Celestial Alignment. Increases dmg done by Arcane and Nature spells by 25% and consumes all Eclipse energy in the process and prevents any being gained while under the effect. Lasts 15 sec. 2 min CD.

    Nature's Grace also appears to have gotten the axe

    They're giving warriors totems? They better add paid class changes, or make achieves and legendaries account bound (server-wise).

    Also, Paladin's Blessing of Might has been changed into a 5 Mastery buff. It's the only mastery buff in the game so far, that I've noticed. Fingers of Frost has been changed too. It was added back in (it wasn't in the previous calculator), and instead of proccing on chill effects, it always procs when you cast a Freezing spell on a target that fails. And some Priest spells that were missing in the last build are back. Mind Blast is Shadow only. Spirit Shell has been added in for Disc, it's a 3 second cast shield. If it expires without the target taking damage, the target is healed for 80% of the amount. Mind Spike has been added.

    Creates an absorption shield on the target for X (currently 3864) damage lasting for 8 seconds. If the shield is untouched and expires, the target is healed for 80% of the amount

    Nature's Grace is baked into Eclipse.

    Arcane Mages will have to have other ways to balance their output. But taking away one of the biggest offenders of overscaling Intellect is a good thing for the class as a whole (Arcane doesn't have to be nerfed every patch, with Fire buffed in the hopes of preetending to keep up)
